Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for December 09, 2012
FRANCIS: This book about evolution is fascinating! CHAD: What is evolution? FRANCIS: It's the way species change in response to their environment! All species are evolving all the time! CHAD: Even us? FRANCIS: Sure! Let's say that tomorrow there's another ice age! People would probably become hairier to protect themselves from the cold! CHAD: Ha! That's funny! NATE: So...we'd all just start growing more hair? FRANCIS: No, no...It would happen gradually! It would take thousands of years! NATE: Tough luck, Dad! DAD: Thanks so much.
